    Seems Adam's following in the footsteps of his mentor the pelican. His podcast has gotten progressively worse since the new year and his canning of Allison. Everyday is eh shit projects Road Hard or Newman documentary talk.

    Carolla shares Hampton Howie's wretched skill of crowbarring-in commercials non-stop rendering said show(s) unlistenable

    Tons of more commercials in the past few months. I dont listen unless there is a good guest like today......Gilbert. I guess he wants to monetize his show and catch up to Kimmels network paycheck

    Way too many podcasts to choose from.

    How you figure? All she does is kiss Adam's ass and never offers a counterpoint. Even Brian's comments seem forced like he's afraid that he may be next. I even think the Rotten Tomatoes game is set up so Gina wins of late to make her seem cool

    as if the constant long commercials aren't enough, they blabber 2 minutes to create a segue for a live read. makes you feel like a fool for wasting your fucking time

    Carolla claimed his terrible movie was handed negative reviews due to his political views.

    What a shithead.

    He is a bit repetitive at times with all his get your shit together speeches. But, his Podcast is good and consistently entertaining, I'll be a regular listener for the foreseeable future.

    I liked him for a long time.
    Then one day I didn't like him anymore.
    Has nothing to do with politics.

    You forgot about bitching about:

    Lynette not pulling her weight
    Jo Koy
    Mangria

    I used to be a fan of his. I thought he was funnier than Jimmy. Now I rarely bother checking out his show. The live from some comedy club shows really suck. He's not a comedian. Who pays to go see him?

    OMG yes, I listen on my 10 year old iPod when I drive to work and I usually hold down the fast forward button for 3-4 seconds for any commercial read, but I noticed with the revery bed reads he just goes on and on, sometimes I just skip to the next podcast when I hear he is about to read that add, or I'll just hold down my fast forward button for about 15-20 seconds.

    I agree. the only segments I'd listen to is when DFG is on but they're few and far between so I'm unsubscribing

    My sentiments exactly. He's an arrogant ass who doesn't even try to entertain anymore. All he does is bitch as if he didn't choose to be in entertainment. I think his wife's podcast is better than his.

    I have only listened to one show. He had a musician on I like and wanted to hear it. It was pretty awkward. He tried to suck up to him saying he was a big fan, but kept getting things wrong, including the name of his first band and the bandmate it was named after. It was a little douche chilling.

    Thank christ you people finally caught up.

    I started listening to Carolla the same year I started listening to Howard, sometime in the mid-to-late 90s.

    They both turned into repetitive, hypocrite, bitter, unentertaining douchebags around the mid 00s.

    The only difference is you all were listening to Stern exclusively until 2009/2010, so you never really heard Carolla's descent first-hand the way you heard Stern's. Carolla's shit was fresh when you started listening to the podcast, because you hadn't heard his same rants over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over like us on the west coast. I got friends who started listening to Stern late in the game, to them he wasn't so bad until very recently either...

    Adam Carolla used to be a goddamn genius. His material was consistently fresh and he was constantly hilarious. I worshipped the old Loveline the same way I worshipped the old Stern show. But those days are long gone and will never return. Fuck you, "Aceman." Fuck you, Wiggy. Two complete and total talk radio hacks, forever shells of their former selves.
